Following Wines Til Sold Out – September Cheapskate Marathon

September 16, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

WTSO logo 2012And here we come again – one of my favorite subjects – a round up of a Wine Til Sold Out wine marathon event. This time around the event took place on Tuesday (September 10th) instead of traditional Wednesday. It also lasted for 17 hours instead of 18. For those who are not familiar with the Cheapskate Marathon, it is the event which takes place once in the few month on WTSO.com, where all the wines are priced in the fixed range of $7.99 to $18.99 and typically are sold in the quantity of 4. Also, unlike normal course of sales at WTSO, during Cheapskate the new wines are only advertized on Twitter and you need to keep refreshing the main WTSO web page in order to see the new wines coming out.

Below are the stats for the event – if you are interested in comparing with the past events, you can find three of the recent posts herehere and here.

Bottles Sold: 99,134!
More than 110 different wines sold
41.4% of sales came from our Mobile App, 58.6% from the web.
The biggest sales hour in terms of volume was at 7 AM.

 

I don’t know about you, but for me the numbers look very impressive. This time around I managed to get one wine (and, as usual, missed on the few others which I wanted).

 

Before I will leave you with the data, here is the usual guide to rating abbreviations: WS – Wine Spectator, WA – Wine Advocate, ST – Steven Tanzer, WE – Wine Enthusiast, WRO –  Wine Review Online, W&S – Wine and Spirits, JS – James Suckling, RP – Robert Parker, JHN – Jonathan H. Newman, D – Decanter Magazine, rating goes in stars ( 5 stars is max), JH – James Halliday, TRR – The Rhone Report, BH – Burghound, IWR – International Wine Report, TLC – The Library Collection.
Enjoy!

      Nice work! It is not easy to keep up with WTSO marathon 🙂

  3. September 16, 2013 at 11:22 pm

    Still bummed I didn’t buy that Molitor Riesling. Should be great!

      September 16, 2013 at 11:57 pm

      yeah… too many wines… Well, there always will be another wine : )

      • September 17, 2013 at 12:00 am

        That’s true. Somehow, this time around, none of the wines tickled my fancy…which was a good experience, too, but still weird. 🙂

  4. September 17, 2013 at 8:44 am

    Those prices are impressive! I still have not tried WTSO, but as it will be a while (maybe a couple of months) I may have to check them out.

      You have to give them a try! WTSO has a lot of great values, and also they are very reliable. Definitly recommend it.
